Zyprexa, like nearly: ALL Rx medications are single molecules, FDA approved (based on human trials) as reasonable to be marketed for specific FDA "Indication(s)". How any given individual's behavior changes as a result of taking any given amount varies widely & is NOT totally predictable in advance. Meds rarely (if ever) solve human problems. They are only tools which may alter behavior(s) in various ways.
